I finally got the used engine in my car that I bought from a guy in Ohio a few months back this past weekend. I got blessed because it runs great with lots of power. I'm going to take it easy with it until I do some fine tuning but it's been a long time coming. Didn't get any pics because I just plumb forgot. The transplant took two days with two of us working on it. Everthing went without a hitch, no broken or lost screws, nuts, studs, or bolts and the exhaust came apart like it was put together last week. Went on just as easy. Oh, and no leaks.

Thank you Gentlemen. Joe, it was that block you saw in my driveway that day. I painted the block with silver engine paint to match my interior. If you come over this weekend you'll get to see what's left of the old one. It's the original block so I'm going to get it rebuilt someday and put it back. The used engine was just to get me by until then.
